AC Repair for Aurora (IL): Reasons You Might Call

The following are several of the more-common issues we might respond to for AC units in Aurora.
Dirty coils. Your air conditioning unit’s evaporator and condenser coils collect dirt over their lengthening service time. A dirty evaporator coil will reduce airflow and insulate the coil, which lowers its ability to absorb heat. The outdoor condenser coil likewise can become soiled if the exterior AC unit is close to dust and foliage.
Fan-motor failure. Air conditioners use two fans: the blower fan inside and a fan in the outdoor AC unit that helps release hot air to the outside. If either fan fails, it will interrupt the heat-exchange cycle required for properly working AC. If the fan motor for the outdoor unit starts to malfunction, it will affect the condenser and create problem signs such as reduced airflow and no cooled air.
Refrigerant leaks. Your AC relies on a coolant to cycle and disperse both cool and warm air. If the coolant level begins to fall short, it’s often because of a leak. Correcting a refrigerant leak is important for your comfort as well as environmental safety.
Compressor failure. Located in your outside AC unit, the compressor circulates the refrigerant needed for heat exchange through the coils of the indoor and outdoor cooling system components. It also applies energy to the refrigerant. A failing compressor will show signs such as “hard” starts, no cool air inside and loud noises.
Electrical-system malfunction. Because AC includes interdependent wires and parts for using the power it draws, electrical issues can often cause a cooling system to malfunction. For example, fan controls and the compressor can wear out if the AC unit cycles on and off a lot as it will when it’s oversized for the house being cooled.
Other common AC repair issues in Aurora we might be called for can include:
loose seals in system ductwork
loose or worn belts
failed start or run capacitor
blocked or dirty contactor
